Join ISC Artistic Director Stephen Ponton, director of this summer's production of Macbeth, and other company members for a weekend workshop on what it takes to act Shakespeare well!
Shakespeare's works are some of the richest and most rewarding there are, but they can also be very intimidating to many actors. This two-day workshop is designed to introduce actors to the unique demands of performing Shakespeare, and to give them the tools they need to do it brilliantly. Students will be led through a series of specific techniques and exercises, culminating in guided rehearsals of a scene and monologue from Macbeth.
This workshop will help students:
This is a practical, hands-on course in what you need to know and do in order to act Shakespeare well. No prior experience or training is required, but students will be expected to memorize a short scene prior to arriving at the workshop.

Where: The Community School of Music and Arts in downtown Ithaca (330 East State St), Third Floor Auditorium.
Cost: $75 for members of CSMA, $100 for non-members.
